Customer Question
My name is***** son...

My name is***** son is in escambia road prison. He is indigent, I am on disability and in the hospital. He needs an attorney or public defender. When he was in the Marines, he received a serious head injury when he and his fellow Marines were jumped by a rugby team when his ship was in port in Australia. He was hospitalized with head injuries. He was told he had some brain damage. After that, he started acting strange and was discharged for using drugs. He was arrested here in Pensacola for possession. He violated and ended up in the road prison. His name is***** He needs to get on a rehab program. I am wondering if you might help me find him council. Please can you help him? My phone number is(###) ###-#### If you need to call me. Thank you

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

Florida and it happened earlier this year. I am sorry I don't know the exact date

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

What do you mean?

Lawyer's Assistant: What confuses you?

When he was in the jail, he had an arraignment and his court hearing is scheduled for Nov 20

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Well, like I said, we are poor

A public defender is appointed to any person in FL charged with a crime involving jail time who cannot afford an attorney. The court should appoint a public defender for him on his first appearance, but if due to his head injury he is not aware of this, here is the information for you to call the Escambia County Public Defender's Office:

Escambia County M.C. Blanchard Judicial Center 190 Governmental Center Pensacola, FL 32502. Phone:(###) ###-####/p>
